45 Armor
18% Critical strike.

That's like 1600 gold in stats, then you pay 700-800 or something for the passive, that with around 2600 health it is 45AD. You're paying 700-800 gold for a BF Sword


Why is this item bad again pls?

Before when It gave 60-70 AD for 800 gold, well, that was OP

Because Atmogs was never an efficient item combination to begin with unless your character had some means of scaling off health or had a large innate AR/MR steroid to back it up.

Mostly because bruiser's scaling with crit is very limited. So in the end, it comes out to 1600 gold paid for that 45 AD IF you get at least 3k hp.

Meaning it isn't gold effective for the most part. Bruisers deal a lot of damage based on abilities, and their AA's tend to not hit that hard, so the crit isn't exactly giving them much, and they have no other crit in their build except trinity force, if at that.

The thing is, the trinity procs will way outdo anything that crit will give, much more reliably.

BF swords aren't even that good end game. Guardian Angels however are awesome(and give more armor and mr as well). Frozen heart has a great debuff, more resistances(over double the armor) and cdr which helps almost every champ in the game notably. Randuins gives more armor(1.5x), hp, a good passive and an amazing active. Aegis gives almost as much armor, good mr, hp, 1/4.5 BF sword and one of the best passives in the game(oh and its cheaper).

So as a tank or bruiser... why would i get Atmas? As an AD carry GA is going to help more than atmas(you can't even begin to argue this). As an AD caster ... lets just stop at 1/3 the item's value being in crit.

That 2% -> 1.5% finished off what use a minimal amount of champs had use for it.

Niche item became useless item.

The stats of atma's aren't increased from the items that made it, so you're paying 825 gold purely for the passive.

You get 45 ad if you have 3k health.

What bruiser wants that?
